to make a nutshell, a dead leaf, human body, a living plant,… start sounding by simply touching them. The idea of „the missing link“ is to let any conductive materials, especially organic living creatures such as human, be the indispensable part of the self-built sound-making circuit. Only with the direct contact can the flow of energy be uninterrupted and the sound can be heard. How close the contact also influence how the sound will be. Furthermore, because each living creature or conductive objects are inherently different from each other, each resulting sound is naturally different from the other.
„The missing link“ can be an interactive installation, a sound intervention in a sound walk whether in an urban or natural environment.
